Great hotel, great staff, great surf. Went with a group of 10 20-30 year olds some couples, some singles. The facility isn't brand new but the rooms were great, there were tons of things to do, the surf(early November) was pretty consistent and good for both beginners and intermediate/good surfers. Drinks were good and plentiful and the food was great, especially the main buffet. Would do it again in a second.
This hotel looks right out on a great surf break that is perfect for beginner/intermediate surfing and SUP. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with all kinds of recommendations and the room/view was amazing! Quaint little town with great restaurants but if you want night life this is not the spot.

Hotel des Artistes located in the Punta de Mita Beach Club and Spa- is a new five star boutique luxury beachfront Hotel …More
Fantastic family friendly resort in Punta Mita. Every single member of the staff is perfectly trained to anticipate needs and desires, front-desk, pools, beach, cleaning crew, valet parking. The rooms are very good, do not expect flashy, we are talking discrete luxury. We stayed at an ocean front with a magnificent view. The food is simple and excellent. The activities are unique and surprising - for example: local fishermen bring the catch of the day, the chef expertly describes he fish and how it could be cooked and you pick your own fish to eat. We had a superb parrot fish ceviche for lunch! The beach activities are great and mostly included in the rate: boogy boards, kayaks, snorkel gear, and even fishing gear. There are two beaches available: one has bigger waves than the other. The infinity swimming pool is amazing, and what can top cold towels, evian spray, and ice-cream by very nice pool attendants. The "slow river" pool is a relaxing option. In sum: expensive but worth every cent.
"Very cozy place to stay away from the noise of PV"
My wife and I stayed a week at this hotel and enjoyed every day. The food was excellent. The service was truly amazing (Alfredo and Hector in the restaurant, Merciado behind the bar, Moises, all of them).
My wife and I recently stayed at the St Regis for the first time this past week and had a excellent experience. The service was fantastic, the food and drinks were great, and the ambiance could not have been better.
My husband and I took our 2 children to Rancho Banderas for one week. Loved it! We chose the all-inclusive option, which for me, was priceless. No cooking for an entire week! The staff was extremely accommodating and treated our children wonderfully (big plus as a mom). Really liked that it is a smaller resort and, therefore, we got to know the other guests and even made some life-long friends. Alberto.....we miss you! Mary.....you have the hands of an angel (best massage EVER). We hope to be back soon.
"Beautiful condo/hotel with beach and jungle views"
My apartment was great with panoramic views. The jungle pool is an infinity pool overlooking the jungle and a bit of the beach. It almost seemed like Bali. But as great as that may sound, be aware that there are creeping bugs everywhere. You're surrounded by lush green for miles, so with that comes life! If you decide to stay here don't be silly like I was with leaving the apartment's balcony doors open after sunset. So many different types of insects had crawled inside by the time I was back from going shopping for groceries. They were everywhere! On the beds, walls, floor, behind curtains... Anyhow, just be careful with dark skies, open doors, and light bulbs on!
